About the Class

This two-day workshop looks at the unique cut-paper method developed by Henri Matisse. He used cut paper to plan his compositions and eventually made it his primary medium, establishing himself as one of those rare artists whose late work was as original, vital, and controversial as their earliest creations. Learn more about this fascinating medium and discover your inner Matisse with a hands-on lesson!

Capacity: 18
